In the New York hustle and bustle, it’s easy to separate ourselves from nature — animals, trees, the sun. And there’s a strong link between excessive, isolated computer use and chronic lower back pain and depression (see other FB post for research).

Break away from it all, decrease stress and take some time to be still, quiet and mindful. Yes, you can be still with a friend.

Sit, lay down or walk in silence, practicing your deep, diaphragmatic breathing. Keep all cell phones/androids out of reach and ear shot.
